This film introduces CyArk, a project of the Kacyra Family Foundation that is preserving the world's most valued cultural heritage sites in three-dimensional digital form. Realizing that World Heritage Sites steadily undergo decay, the CyArk team has set about to use the latest laser-scanning technology to collect the most accurate 3D models possible from these sites and store them safely in a publicly accessible archive. This introduction covers the threats to the world's cultural heritage, describes the technology used and explains the CyArk strategy.
